How Our Engineering Team Works:
The engineering team operates using two-week sprints, following continuous delivery principles, and employs both Scrum and Kanban methodologies, depending on the project:
Two-week Sprints with Scrum: For some projects, we adopt a Scrum framework and conduct two-week sprints.
Pure Kanban: In other cases, we utilize a pure Kanban approach for workflow management.
We implement continuous delivery practices supported by an automated pipeline, which includes Infrastructure as a Service integrated into our development process.
Our engineering team is structured as follows:
Squads: We organize our teams into squads, each consisting of 3 developers, 1 tester, 1 product owner, and 1 UX/UI designer.
Traditional Scrum Team: Additionally, we maintain traditional Scrum teams, comprising 1 Product Owner, 1 Team Lead, and 4 to 6 developers.
Squad Leaders: Within our squads of 3-4 developers, we designate a Squad Leader. There are typically 2 squads per team, each led by a Team Leader, and each squad has its dedicated Product Owner.
Our developers actively participate in testing as part of the development process, while UX/UI design is outsourced as needed.
